Six-Pack of Vanity, Volume One
On this Six-Pack episode Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, and Jeff Harris of Behind The Grooves rejoin Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the life of Denise Matthews, known to the world as Vanity. From her early days working with Prince on his Vanity 6 side project, through their breakup and her subsequent solo albums with Motown, to her acting career in such films as The Last Dragon (“who’s the master!?!?”) and Action Jackson, to her being born again and preaching the gospel, Vanity lived quite a storied and tumultuous life. We vacillate between her sex symbol image and the tragic figure that never really got a fair shake – with the mixture you’d expect of teenage boyish giggles for the gorgeous girl on our walls and the deep thoughts as emotionally intelligent guys wanting her to find balance and redemptive peace she sought… did she? We discuss that and much more between some VERY explicitly sexy songs courtesy of Vanity, the Purple One, and others. You’ve been warned!
So sit back and revisit the life of Denise Matthews aka Vanity.
